    For a nature vacation, look on the Bright side

    Fancy some stellar rock-climbing or hiking? Or maybe some skiing down idyllic, snow-covered slopes? The breathtaking town of Bright gives you easy access to all of these. This tranquil locale is situated on the edges of Mount Buffalo National Park and Alpine National Park, plus the ski resort of Mount Hotham. And for all you Tasmanian daredevils, Bright's also a centre for paragliding, hosting yearly festivals and competitions. And say hello to marvellous pastoral views of the forests, rivers and mountains that surround Bright vacation rentals. They're gorgeous all year long, but the colours really pop in autumn.

    Outdoor lovers, your future's lookin' Bright.

    If your idea of a perfect getaway is spending every possible moment outside, than your future is Bright vacation rentals! The Bright Autumn Festival draws loads of visitors who come to admire the vibrant foliage on the town's countless poplars, oaks and maples. And if you want to amp up the view to an 11, check out the paragliding launch sites sprinkled around and outside of the town. You can soar over the trees. And with wine and farm tours, cafe terraces, and beautiful hiking and biking trails, you'll always have a fresh way to enjoy the crisp, clean air.

    Park your travel party at any of these beautiful parks

    With so many gems of nature to admire, let's dive right in with the popular Mount Buffalo National Park. Most Bright vacation rentals are about 40 km from this splendid park that's rife with waterfalls, mountain hikes and more. Then you have Alpine National Park, which is Victoria's largest at a whopping 646,000 hectares. Here you can camp, fish, ski... really, you'll be able to find any type of outdoorsy fun you're craving. And right in Bright, bring your camera for Apex Lookout, which offers panoramic mountain views. And take a stroll in Bright Memorial Arboretum or a swim in the Ovens River.

    Autumn in Bright looks like the first half of a rainbow

    Autumn is hands down the most spectacular time for Bright, when the trees simply explode with colour. And right around Christmastime is popular too, when that southern sun heats up fast. With average highs in the upper 20s, plus very few chances for rain, Bright sets the stage for endless summer fun. And the winter's pretty swell too, featuring mild lows in the teens and frequent rain. Of course, rain in the mountains means snow, so June, July and August are the best months to get your ski on.

    A low-elevation town surrounded by high-in-the-sky peaks

    While the surrounding area and National Parks are high in the skies, Bright itself has a low elevation of about 319 m. But this is a perfect way to gradually acclimate yourself to greater heights, especially if you're planning to hike, climb or hit the slopes. The rivers and dams are stocked with trout and yabbies, a native crustacean resembling a crawfish. If fishing's not reeling you in, check out the animals in a farm tour, or wander the trails for some fruitful birdwatching. And you might spy a platypus or wallaby too.
